Hello Friends and Family, first and foremost I would like to thank you all for being so supportive to me as a designer it means the world to know that I can provide you with objects, furniture and allowing Plank to be a part of so many special occasions. For those that don’t know I have begun an exciting push for higher education by starting a Masters of Fine Arts at The School of the Art Institute. My goal this semester and most of the remaining time at SAIC is to open a design studio on Chicago’s south that offers a closer look at design and its many processes but also to exploit the idea of getting involved with the design and build that happens in and around your community. This, as a individual is a difficult task, but with the help of a village theres nothing that can’t be done. I work particularly with youths to bring design close and take the fear out of power tools and instill empowerment thru “Do it Yourself”.
